The Nexus 6, is the smartphone which Google hopes will debut its new Android L operating system to the world. The phone features quite high-end specs including a super-fast processor and an ultra-sharp QHD screen. This being said, there are several ominous problems with this device which make it one which consumers should steer clear of for the time being. Read below 4 reasons why you shouldn’t buy the Nexus 6.
1. Six Inches Is Too Big
While competitors like Apple and Samsung decided that 5.5 and 5.7 inches were their limits respectively in terms of screen size, Motorola has tried to once again push the boundaries. Unfortunately, it is likely that the Nexus 6’s 5.96 inch display, will simply be too big for many users, especially women who have smaller hands. Furthermore, while ‘phabets’ already look rather silly when used for calls, a 6 inch Nexus 6 will look downright ridiculous.
2. $699 Price Tag
Prior to the release of the latest Nexus devices, the brand itself was seen as a mid-range option. With the Nexus 6, this is no longer true. The phone goes on sale for a huge $699 price tag, making it roughly the same price as competitors’ devices, despite lacking many of their more advanced features, including biometrics, styluses and more advanced optics.
3. Andoid L Is Not A Unique Feature
One of the main points that Google/Motorola used in the marketing for the Nexus 6 smartphone was that the phone would be among the first to use the new Android 5.0 (Lollipop) operating system. While this OS is indeed very innovative and brings many new changes to the ecosystem, is actually no longer unique to the Nexus 6. As well as major manufacturers like LG bringing it to their phones in the coming months, a consumer can already purchase the (much cheaper) Nexus 5 to experience Android L right now.
4. Battery Life Problems
One worrying piece of news which we have been hearing is that the Nexus 6 has some serious battery problems. While its 3220 mAh battery is on par with that of rival devices, the Nexus 6 runs dry at a seemly rapid pace. It has been suggested that this may be due to software bugs within Android L’s WiFi connectivity, however, for the moment it would be a good idea to stay clear of this phone until this is patched.
